NAPLES, September 24 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian government awarded several officials of the Russian language media outlets from Israel, Latvia, Slovakia and Hungary with the Russian Governmental Certificates of Honour. The awarding ceremony was held at the 14th World Congress of the Russian Press, which opened under the auspices of the Russian state-run news agency ITAR-TASS in Naples on Monday.
Russian Deputy Minister of Telecommunications and Mass Media Alexei Volin conferred the Russian Governmental Certificates of Honour on the Israeli television station Channel 9, the magazine “Lilit” issued in Latvia, the Russian office of Radio Slovakia International and the Hungarian newspaper “Russian Courier of Central Europe”. The efforts of these editions for the popularization of the Russian language and the promotion of Russian culture were noted.
Opening the World Congress of the Russian Press, President of the World Association of the Russian Press Vitaly Ignatenko noted that the debates over the implementation of the projects, which are offered for the Russian language press, remain traditionally on the agenda of this vitally important institute of the Russian-language media. This is primarily the education of journalists for the Russian-language media, the work with young readers, the situation of the Russian-language newspapers and magazines, radio and TV programs, which are intended for the younger generation and children. “As their ties with the historical homeland, the Russian language and culture are already not direct, but totally depending from the parents and that information and cultural environment, which is being created round them in each country, which has the Russian diaspora,” Ignatenko said.
Meanwhile, Alexander Blinov, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper “Vesti Segodnya” (News Today) issued in Latvia, was awarded with an honorary badge of the laureate of the Prize named after Yakov Borovoy (a prominent ITAR-TASS journalist, who passed away prematurely).
